GEOL 4880 home page, 2013 version      

Fall 2013, Note some of the links won’t work since they point to last years material, (if the date is prior to 2013, then it will be changed this year).  Also various symbols may be browser dependent (they work in IE, but variably in Firefox) and may not print properly over the web.  Please tell me when you see symbol problems and I will try to fix.

You need to read the syllabus and particularly the syllabus notes.
